Tackling the Elephant – Boring Job Descriptions

Despite all the talk of recruitment marketing and employer brand development, most of us still promote our openings with a job description. We complain that they don’t persuade candidates but can’t imagine recruiting for a position without one. We are overwhelmed by the thought of re-writing all of them. Join us for this engaging webinar as we share research-based tips for enhancing the approach and improving the text, and discuss the challenges and constraints that can be overcome.

  • Bethann Weaver, Global Recruiting and Staffing Manager at Eli Lilly
  • Jessica Masterson, Manager Employment Brand and Diversity Recruiting at Allstate Insurance
  • Jim Fox, Recruitment & Human Resource Advisor

  • Successes and lessons learned from involving the hiring managers in revising job descriptions
  • Constraints and solutions to revising company-wide job descriptions
